How to Cut Costs and Improve Productivity with Your Compressed Air System #IIC09

Tue. September 11| 11:00 AM - 11:55 AM | W196-B

The United States Department of Energy estimates that half of all compressed air generated is wasted to leaks, artificial demand, and inappropriate uses. While compressed air is necessary for manufacturing processes, it is very costly to produce. Strategies for reducing compressed air waste such as leak detection and monitoring, pressure stability, and proper application are essential to improving system reliability and keeping costs low. Additionally, new technology in controls and communications is bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) to the plant floor. Applying this technology to compressed air systems adds convenience to daily plant manager activities, enables energy monitoring, and makes Predictive Maintenance (PdM) a reality. This presentation will feature a case study example from a metal products plant who achieved nearly $45,000 in annual energy cost savings by conducting a thorough compressed air audit. Industry expert Neil Mehtretter will illustrate how plants can achieve continuous improvement with their compressed air systems, add money back to their bottom line, and improve overall system operation.
